Sports Medicine in 140 Characters

I love Twitter. It is a great source for breaking news and people’s immediate reactions to that news. It is a great source for networking. And it’s just fun. If I have two minutes waiting in line, you can bet that I have Twitter open on my phone.

Social media iconsI thought it would be fun to write a post listing some great tweets that I’ve found about a variety of topics in sports medicine. I got the idea from a regular post by Jane Friedman listing the Best Tweets for Writers. I haven’t decided if I will make it a regular column (or how frequently, if I do write it regularly), so let me know if you like it. And if there is a tweet I missed or someone I should follow who writes great sports medicine tweets, leave it in the Comments section below.
